Bet The Giants Vs. Eagles Against the Spread Sunday Night Football Odds

The Giants (3-2 SU, 3-2 ATS) are playing their best football of the season and enter this Week 6 NFC East divisional battle riding an impressive three-game winning streak that includes wins over Houston, Washington and the last time out, Atlanta.

The G-Men rolled all over the struggling Falcons 30-20 to cash in as a 4-point home fave as Eli Manning completed 19 of 30 passes for an even 200 yards with two touchdowns – and more importantly – no interceptions.

Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly told reporters he’s noticed the difference in the Giants’ offensive system – and recent results.

"They seem like they’ve picked it up over the last couple of weeks but it’s very different than what they’ve done before," Kelly said.

New York also limited Atlanta to just 90 rushing yards, turning them into a one-dimensional team they easily handled. New York held the opposition to 20 points or less for the third straight game to cash in each time.

The G-Men are ranked a mediocre 18th in total offense and in the middle third in both passing and rushing. Somehow though, the Giants are ranked eighth in scoring (26.6 ppg).

Defensively, New York ranks in the middle third in every meaningful statistical category, including points allowed (22.2 ppg, 17th).

"This is a divisional game," Giants’ head coach Tom Coughlin said. "Obviously Philadelphia is playing very, very well. It is a game within the division for us, so we are just excited for that opportunity."

Philadelphia (4-1 SU, 4-1 ATS) bounced back from their narrow Week 4 loss to San Francisco to beat the St. Louis Rams 34-28 and narrowly cash in as a 3.5-point home favorite.

However, the game had more than its share of controversy for the Eagles as they nearly let a 20-7 halftime lead slip away by giving up 14 unanswered points to the Rams in the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Nick Foles completed 24 of 37 pass attempts for 207 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while the Birds’ defense sacked Rams quarterback Austin Davis four times. The bad news for Philly is that they also allowed Davis to throw for a whopping 375 yards with three touchdowns and no picks.

Foles has struggled throwing the deep ball this season, getting picked off a league-high four times on 31 attempts of at least 21 yards or more – tops in the league.

"We can’t be afraid of throwing the deep ball," said Foles, who had one interception on 43 such passes in 2013. "I’m not afraid of throwing the deep ball. I’ve always liked throwing the deep ball."

Philly is ranked ninth in passing (265.8 ypg) and a stellar second in scoring (31.2 ppg) though they are also ranked in the bottom third in every meaningful defensive statistical category, including points allowed (26.4 ppg).

For this contest, I am going to urge you to back the Philadelphia Eagles to straighten up and fly right at home against a Giants team I’m not very sure about, seeing as how they’ve beaten up on a bunch of sissies their last three games.

These two longtime rivals have split the last six meetings evenly with each team winning on the road last season, at home the season prior and again, on the road in 2011.

If form holds true, that means both teams would win again on their home fields, but that’s not why I’m going to encourage you to back the Eagles in this Week 6 showdown.

I like Philadelphia because they always get up for a game against the Giants, not to mention my aforementioned feelings about New York’s legitimacy after their three ‘easy’ wins.

The road team in this series is 5-1-1 ATS in the last seven meetings and the Giants are 6-2-1 ATS in their L/9 road games against the Birds, but I still like Philadelphia mostly because they have a bit of desperation as they try to fix some of the early-season issues that have plagued them a bit, like not being able to play a complete game yet.
